Mitt Romney

Judge UNSEALS Docs,

Allred Gets Shut Down

1025_gloria_allred_court_article
Mitt Romney's testimony in his friend's divorce case -- in which he's accused of lying under oath to screw over his friend's ex-wife -- will be unsealed today and released to the Boston Globe ... the judge has ruled. 

As we first reported, Mitt testified in the divorce of Staples' founder Tom Stemberg -- and Tom's ex-wife Maureen claims Mitt lied under oath, falsely undervaluing Staples' stock in order to shaft her in the divorce.

Mitt's people have already said the Presidential hopeful doesn't care if the testimony is released -- he has nothing to hide.

Things didn't fare so well for Gloria Allred -- her request to ungag her client was shut down by the hot judge ... because Gloria never submitted an official motion to the court.

Gloria was grasping at straws in a last ditch effort to get the judge to cut her a break -- but she was shot down, hard.

The transcripts will be released to the Globe any minute.

8:30 AM PT -- Gloria denied accusations she's a "surrogate" for the Democratic party ... who's only representing Stemberg in order to wreak havoc on the Romney campaign.

8:20 AM PT  --
During a news conference, Gloria accused the Boston Globe of pulling a "double-cross" because she says the paper abandoned its motion to have the gag order against Maureen Sullivan Stemberg lifted.

She got $500,000 shares of Staples out of the divorce, and she cashed out half of that before Staples went public. That's on her. And what I want to know -- we wouldn't find out until after the election and the campaign takes out the garbage -- is if Allred and the ex-wife tried to extort millions from Romney to keep any mention of the case out of the news. (Because with a sealed case, he can't defend himself against whatever charge Allred wants to make and knows it and waited until two weeks before the election to pimp TMZ to whore for her.)

Allred doesn't actually want the case unsealed because she doesn't want it resolved, she wants to smear Mitt Romney without him being able to refute whatever allegations she wants to make -- as insinuations and "exclusives" that TMZ reports straight from her mouth. TMZ reporters and editors are idiots with no clue how the political machine works or what a tool they are.

This is silly. Staples had not gone public yet. It was expanding during that time and was borrowing money for that expansion. It is possible that the p/e ratio was inflated..that happens with stocks, causing the value of the stock to be overvalued. Whatever the case, if there was impropriety, she could have taken him to court years ago. He was not saying the stock was worthless. Understand what overvalued means.

And we wonder what is wrong with this country??
So worried about a "lie" in court under oath...
Didn't 44 take an oath to this country?
Did it ever cross your mind that he did not want to talk about Benghazi until AFTER elections but got busted? What is wrong with you people?

I really wish Harvey would stop pushing his own agenda and who he wants in. by most of the responses most here have seen that Obama is a lair and a cheat. Also, funny enough. Harvey doesn't read his own website.

First sounds like a woman scourned, the millions she got obviously wasn't enough..poor thing. Secondly, you choose to follow this, but when it comes to the government lying about Fast and Furious.. no one seems to be around. Which seems way more serious since the drugs lords of Mexico have guns we sent them. Hello..TMZ.. Wake up.
